I have been a fan of UGG brand boots since I first learned of them. But recently, I’d been hearing about some UGG lookalikes on Amazon and knew I had some homework to do in testing and reporting back to you all.
As a girl who grew up in the wintery midwest and is always complaining about being cold, I am experienced at seeking out warm boots for a decent price. I’ve stood outside at sledding hills, hockey rinks and shlepped in and out of my car with kids, groceries, winter gear and the likes for 35 years.
I had never heard of the UGG brand before the year 2000 when Oprah gifted 350 pairs of UGG booties to her studio audience as one of her “favorite things” at the holidays. All my friends started talking about them and then all the celebrities started wearing them in the magazines.
To be worn with pants, leggings, shorts, and dresses alike, they seemed to break all fashion rules and become the cool shoe to have. But they also had the potential to break your bank with a price tag of $150-$250 per pair. And if you need more than one pair (you know, different colors, different styles, etc), things get extra pricey.
Here’s the good news: lots of shoes brands have jumped on the bandwagon and started manufacturing sheepskin-lined boots and slippers. These UGG lookalikes do a great job.
They have the same inspiration – they are cozy, comfy, and offer lots of fun styles all without putting a big dent in your wallet. Amazon carries lots of these UGG-inspired brands made with genuine sheepskin and suede and are backed by four and five-star reviews. Some are even under $50.
So as you would expect, I tried many of them out for you! Let me help you save some money while keeping your feet warm for a fraction of the cost. Check out my finds:
Ankle Height UGG Boot Lookalikes
I have this pair of ankle-height lookalike UGGs and wear them often. The memory foam is so cushy on your feet. Similar to the UGG Classic Ultra Mini II boot but half the price.
They are easy for to and from the gym with leggings. I also like them with jeans since they are low like tennis shoes and you can’t beat the cushy factor with this brand.
If you like a height somewhere between the super low and mid-calf, check these out. These fit similar to the UGG Classic Mini II boot and are a well-rated brand with lots of colors to choose from.
Who can forget the knit UGGs with fur? These ONCAI have that same knit sweater inspiration with the cute fur collar around the ankle.
These are for indoor or outdoor in the fall and not for wintery weather. But oh man they are cute and soft. My daughter had a pair of these and loved them.
If you are looking for a little height or want to dress up the classic, cozy, suede look, this is a great choice. This wedge boot reminds me of the Malvella UGG style for one-third the price.
Such a darling boot and I know my daughter always loved some sparkle when she was little. Good non- slip sole and several cute colors.
Mid-Calf Lookalike UGG Boots
This is my go-to favorite boot. These are a mid-calf height similar to the UGG Classic Short boot. These cozy lined boots have over 12,000 reviews.
The mid-calf height is well-liked especially if you are traipsing in snowy areas. This height is also cute with skirts and dresses.
I personally own this pair of boots and love them. These are a mid-calf boot with a knit woven back panel with dual adjustable buckle straps. I will tell you they are cushy, comfortable and warm.
The back detailing gives them a little fashion edge.
These are the UGG Bailey Button Boot lookalike. The button detailing adds a fun fashion statement.
Same popular mid-calf height with thousands of good reviews and under $50.
This brand has all the cute details like a fold-over fur top and bows. My daughter wanted the bows but I love this pair and have the one with just the fur. Check this brand out with so many styles.
I still love this old-school style. It looks and fits like the UGG Bailey Bow II Boot. This versatile boot with fluffy lining will bring a touch of softness and warmness and is a must-have in the cold winter.
Fun for all ages and can be paired with practically any outfit.
Knee High Tall Lookalike UGG Boots
I had to get these lookalike UGG tall boots. These boots have the cute elasticized buttons details on the side along with cozy soft faux fur lining.
If you like a higher boot, these came right up to my knee and for colder days, I love how it keeps my calf warm! Another great price tag under $50.
These are another tall lookalike UGG. I had 2 pairs of this style I wore out until there was basically nothing left many years ago. The best winter memories I have are when wearing this style boot!
For all you gals who wish boots had more room in the calf, these are for you. If you have larger calves, these should be comfy for you.
Check out the cute detailing and all of the customer reviews.
Another great item from Cushionaire that fits and feels like an UGG slipper. But the memory foam is the difference maker.
This brand is well-rated for a reason and they offer wide sizes too.
These fit and feel like the classic UGG slipper. So cozy for around the house. I wear them 3 seasons of the year. And the pink color is why I bought these.
Just another version of the same slippers with a few other colors to choose from. They are the perfect at-home and on-the-go slippers.
The bottoms ensure you can go outside without ruining the slippers all together. A great product for an even better price.
Protect Your Shoes and Boots
Crep Protect Rain and Stain Repellent
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that you should protect all of your suede, nubuck and canvas type footwear. This is the spray I use.
It repels liquids and prevents stains. And don’t even risk it. Spray them before you wear them.
I learned the hard way and protecting your suede is the key to long-lasting use.
